„A nation’s future hangs in the balance when it cannot educate its youth. Using a journalistic approach, The Miseducation of Pakistan explores the country’s appalling public education system. Schools with no teachers, schools overflowing with garbage, schools under the open sky, without drinking water or electricity; this is what most students of public schools in Pakistan can look forward to.
… The film also brings attention to the rise of madrassas or faith-based schooling. Using In-depth interviews and shocking footage, the filmmakers reveal a country where quality education is reserved only for a chosen few, while millions of children are denied the chance of a future.“ (Choices)
„In the exposé The Miseducation of Pakistan, Pakistani journalist Naziha Syed Ali serves as a tour guide through Pakistan’s deeply flawed public education system… Collectively, they reveal that while poor Pakistani children want to learn, a combination of apathetic teachers, rampant corruption, and an antiquated, biased curriculum conspires to keep them ignorant. Featuring stylish graphics that present statistics and facts in support of its arguments, The Miseducation of Pakistan should appeal to those interested in both education and world affairs. Highly recommended. (Video Librarian)
